The first ruling that stopped drink being brought onboard by passengers was after an extremely unruly group of school children decided to get completely blotto and cause so much disruption that RCI decided to bring in that ruling to stop this happening on future occasion. Having realised that the ban worked and that their onboard sales rose they, not surprisingly, firmed up the ruling and it is spreading throughout the cruising lines. As for the 15% charge on drinks purchased …this has been around since mainstream cruising began and stems from the fact that in the USA it is customary to leave a tip after every round you purchase, and that still is the case. Why do people not change? Because it is an acceptable practice on so many cruise ships and those that do not charge it do so because they are trying to improve their share of the market. You can vote with your feet if you wish, no one will stop you but you are then limiting your choice. Regards ….Nei.
If you believe RCI then you are easily duped. If every hotel, or holiday camp did this then they would be empty. I remember going to France a few years ago, aparty of school children went absolutely mad whilst the teaching staff sat drinking in the bar. Surely the parents or carers should take responsibility for underage drinkers.
It should not affect responsible adults I think it is that cruise lines are trying to make more money out of passengers. Any cruise line that actually searches everyone when getting onboard does not appeal to me or any of my cruising friends.
Ask Fred Olsen Customers, it is common practice on their ship.
